Knit & Crochet Happiness

This is one of those times I'm happy I learned to both knit and crochet. The spring issue of Interweave Crochet has this beautiful summer tunic that is a combination of knit with crochet edging.

Think I'll use the Crystal Palace Cotton Flamme yarn I bought awhile ago. It's a beautiful coral color that will look great for spring. Of course that means I have to finish it in time to wear for spring............

Tonight was the Stitch-N-Pitch baseball game sponsored by the Washington Nationals MLB team. I bought my ticket months ago with high hopes but wasn't able to leave work in time to attend. What a great concept: bring you needlework project (cross stitch, embroidery, knit, crochet, etc) and stitch the night away during the game. If anyone is familiar (they supposedly have them scheduled all across the country), please let me know how it went. Maybe I can travel up the road for Stitch-n-Pitch with the Orioles.

I love that sweater. Times like this I wish I could knit better. Beautiful color on the yarn too.

I watched that game. I haven't made it to a stitch n pitch yet, but I've been thinking about it. Although, the drive to Seattle is a ways. We'll see. :o)

That sweater is beautiful. I took a crochet class a few years ago because I fell in love with (still in love, too!) a crotched scarf I saw in a book, but I didn't catch on. I think it really is a problem of not enough time. Maybe someday in my life I will. Good luck w/the sweater!

That is going to be gorgeous when it is done! Baseball and knitting/crocheting - a good deal!
